Documentary DVD In Stock

IMG_3580The documentary DVD in stock once again – back by popular demand! This time I am offering them signed, with a “Zarmy” edition patch insert. The purchase price also includes shipping, so this is a deal worth noting. Over the course of the film festival circuit, we managed to get some amazing quotes, including Clive Barker, who said, “Chet Zar’s extraordinary paintings open an elevator shaft that delivers us down into a world of the purest mystery and dread. ‘I Like to Paint Monsters’ is an inspiring and important film about the artist, as well as art itself.” We were also honored to premiere the documentary at the Paradise Artist Retreat (2015), where Guy Aitchison first saw the completed piece, and later wrote for Tattoo Magazine, “A great film that I expect will become a cult classic…beautiful, moving and thought-provoking.” 

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 4.04.30 PMSimilarly, since the documentary dvd release two months ago we have received some wonderful reviews from fans, such as Malinda T. who wrote on Amazon, “One of the BEST art documentaries I have ever seen! A truly MUST see for artists and art fans alike, even if you’re not really into dark art. The cerebral components of the film make it a true diamond in the rough, a unique glimpse into a growing culture of art today.” On iTunes NinaBees wrote, “I don’t think I can adequately express what watching this documentary means to me, but I can try. I knew that I would be blown away by this documentary, but I was also surprised by the degree it moved my spirit.” We always hoped for these kinds of reviews, and 5 star ratings, and are both humbled by the outpouring of appreciation and support! It has rivaled our expectations, certainly. 

dy5topia.squareNow we are seeking even greater exposure, both through our efforts in publicity and advertising, to your purchases and shares. Every person that you bring into the Zarmy fold, is one more opportunity for the vision of Chet Zar to have greater reach. One person shows two people, and two people show four, etcetera. I have always believed that I was working on something much larger than the documentary, and I know Chet similarly feels his body of work is a facet of something bigger. The culmination of this effort is taking shape in DY5TOPIA: A Field Guide to the Dark Universe of Chet Zar, but can be further perpetuated by spreading knowledge of the documentary!

Mike Correll

Mike Correll's fascination with Dark Art is long standing. As a young child he began drawing the monsters that plagued his dreams. Despite the reprimands of his worried teachers, his parents supported him in his artistic endeavors, allowing him to creatively purge the often violent and grotesque images that came to him in his sleep. Drawings made way for collages and sculptures, but Correll sought a larger audience and ultimately turned to filmmaking. In 2002, he graduated with a B.A. from Fairhaven College at Western Washington University, pioneering a degree titled "Imaginative Moviemaking." His studies included screenwriting, film appreciation, video production, and fine arts. Although Correll resides in New Mexico, his home state is Washington where he received local accolades at the Projections Film Festival with his video work, taking Best Feature Documentary for "The Many Faces of Homelessness" as well as Best Animation for "Labyrinth of Penumbra". Correll also interned with EVR Films, where he worked to master skills related to special effects, costume/set design, directing, producing, editing, and cinematography. In addition, he has created TV commercials, music videos, and experimental narratives. His newest release, Chet Zar: I Like to Paint Monsters (2015), takes the audience into the dark and foreboding world of Chet Zar, where apocalyptic industrial landscapes are inhabited by disturbing yet beautiful monstrosities. Correll asks the question: Who is Chet Zar, and why does he like to paint monsters? Hailed by Tattoo Magazine as "Beautiful, moving and thought-provoking", and regaled by Clive Barker as "An inspiring and important film...", the documentary won an "Honorable Mention" at the Santa Monica Independent Film Festival, and the "Guerrilla Marketing" award at the Albuquerque Film and Music Experience.
